Leon King already has the weight of expectation on his shoulders.

Not since the emergence of John Fleck, and the recent rise of Billy Gilmour, have Rangers boasted such an exciting young talent with the 16-year-old seen as the vanguard of the club’s next homegrown generation.



“Leon has been a priority for us and we are excited about his potential,” Rangers sporting director Ross Wilson said in a statement released along with news of King’s contract agreement.



The Ibrox side hope King’s rise is proof the Glasgow club’s youth academy conveyer belt is rolling again.

Rangers have spent a lot of money on their Auchenhowie training base over the last 12 months in an effort to reboot an academy that was once the best in Scotland.

All this made news of King’s decision to sign a professional contract until 2022 significant.

Leon receives fantastic support from his family as well as all of our staff at Auchenhowie who are pushing Leon to maximise his potential on a daily basis.” King has impressed for Rangers’ Under-20s side of late, catching the eye with a stunning strike in a 4-0 win over RB Leipzig in the Mercedes Benz Junior Cup in January.
